MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) last week reopened the Nostrand Avenue Station in Brooklyn, New York, after a more than two-year, $28 million renovation project.
The rebuilt two-track elevated station features two elevators, four staircases, platform canopies, tactile warning strips and digital train departure information displays.
Both platforms were constructed with fiber-reinforced polymer, which is lighter than concrete and more resistant to salt, making it less susceptible to the effects of weathering and degradation in severe environments, LIRR officials said in a press release.
With the accessibility improvements made to Nostrand, 106 stations out of the LIRR’s 124 stations are now accessible according to Americans with Disabilities Act standards, railroad officials said.
Nostrand Avenue Station was built in 1977, serves 1,217 weekday riders and provides direct access to Jamaica Station in Queens, New York.
